I am not sure how the yanone smiths are researched. Naturally all yanone fans know of smiths like Umetada and such, but I guess it is not like the nihonto world. I have quite many yanone with mei but as of yet not made any great effort to research the subject. Hopefully I will be able to to have the time in the future.
onimh: Fantastic collection!!! I just came in from shooting some archery and thought I'd check out this site after a long hiatus. I'm glad I did. I'm still searching for my first yanone and arrows. You've re-energized me-Thank you. Matthew Heller PS-My birthday's in October
